12 Random Thoughts

1 - We've really been trying to get some normalcy around here since all of our traveling and its taking some time.  The boys are wild to be home and I've had to implement a daily routine, so they don't hurt each other.

2 - Babe turned 3 months last week, I can't hardly beleive it. He's getting so fat too. He's starting to really jabber and make noise. Its too fun hearing him.

3 - Its so hot here the boys can't go outside for more than 10 minutes at a time and when they do go out the mosquitos eat LG alive.  Its unbeleivable.

4 - Last week, I managed to get all of us up, feed, showered and out to the van before 9:30 to take LG to speech, only to discover the van had a dead battery.  Luckily the Man was in Missouri at a concert and his truck was here, so I single-handedly pushed the van out of the garage and jumped with the Man's truck.  I was on the phone with him the entire time, but I did it.  I feel like I earned some of my 'extraordinaireness' by doing this.  We made it to speech nearly an hour late, but it was all good.

5 - LG check out Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull from the library last Tuesday and we watched it about 10 times since. I've had enough.

6 - I'm absolutely amazed at how good the boys are with Babe. Buddy is always helping M.E. out and trying to tend to him.  Here he shared the new Lego catalog with him.

7 - Our family meals have resumed from the school parents and friends and its been wonderful.  We had the most delicious beef brisket ever the other night.
It was so yummy - Buddy made this for his lunch the next day.
That's an angus hotdog topped with beef brisket, ketchup and pickles.  He said it was awesome.

8 - I finally broke down, Sunday night and got M.E. some chocolate chip cookies.  The first batch since I finished off Nana's in WA.  I'm pretty proud of myself.

9 - We've started a new game called Monster Baby.  The boys build towers with their blocks then I have Babe come along like gozzila and knock it down.
Its blurry but you can see how excited it makes Buddy.

10 - I got to go see Twilight: Eclipse on Saturday. woo-hoo, woo-hoo, woo-hoo! It was awesome, awesome, awesome.  I loved every minute of it and it was really good to get out of the house alone.  although I did meet a friend there.  The Man managed all the boys and said it was a good afternoon - though I'm not sure if he'll be volunteering to do it again anytime soon.

11 - I've really been wanting to scrapbook, but its simply not happening anytime soon.

12 - Last but not least, my boys!
I'm so lucky!
